  • Arte y Amistad:Diana Moya Lujan
    Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and saw their collection of mosaics For Lujan the two art forms seemed to tie in and she couldn t wait to get back home and experiment Lujan s innovative blend of color material and technique has created another direction within the straw appliqué tradition She incorporates different types of straw and native natural materials in her art Fascinated by the detail created when rendering hair and muscles in straw Lujan turned the tradition inside out It was a challenge to me to do the reverse and began to create silhouettes like the image in her Cristo crucificado con Nuestra Señora de Dolores y San Juan Evangelista included in Arte y Amistad Lujan enjoys the artistic process and likes to play with straw at different angles and patterns She says I want to be able to create a piece and have it look like paint then when people get close they will see it is all straw Lujan used to collect Santas not santos Lionel trains and sewing memorabilia Now she collects work by other straw artists Cristo crucificado con Nuestra Señ ora de Dolores y San Juan Evangelista 2000 straw on

    now works primarily in the style of the historic santeros of the 1820s 1850s His own process includes roughing out the body of the image and then finishing the face first The first thing I want to get across is the face Each piece has to have its own identity he says His work titled Sangre de mi Jesus Lágrimas de María Blood of my Jesus Tears of Mary is an emotional piece that focuses on Mary as Nuestra Señora de Dolores Our Lady of Sorrows and Jesus after he was brought down from the cross The deer hide draped over the cross bears phrases from two different alabados hymns about Mary and the Death of Christ In the mid 1990 s Lujan initiated a series of ground breaking thematic group shows in which Hispanic artists were invited to explore other subjects including Día de los Muertos Day of the Dead and corazones hearts The shows held at his home were integral in giving local artists more venues and visibility Lujan collects Spanish Colonial art and works by fellow Hispanic artists Sangre de mi Jesús Lágrimas de Maria 1999 aspen pine deer hide natural pigments and piñon varnish More About

  • Arte y Amistad: Jean Anaya Moya
    Folk Art MOIFA Now a prize winning artist this part time fire fighter still marvels at the artistic process It s about creating art work and having fun doing it The reason my pieces are different is that I still have a love for retablos which is why you see so many figures in my work I also love to tell stories through my art Moya also paints retablos and animal hides For a long time she felt that the art of straw appliqué didn t get noticed because there were so few artists doing it and that it was often misunderstood Each year she keeps one of her own pieces so that her family can have a collection She started doing this because she knows so many artists and families who for a variety of reasons weren t able to keep their own art and can t afford to buy them today The neatest thing about being an artist is that my kids Craig and Matthew both award winning artists in Youth Market became interested Moya collects horses all kinds and crosses Just Another Day San Isidro Labrador Galisteo New Mexico 2002 pine wheat straw ornamental cornhusk natural pigments

  • Arte y Amistad: Mel Rivera
    he missed the creative process and started painting and sculpting For a while Rivera made Ben Ortega style bultos such as Saint Francis One of his customers ordered one of these figures but requested that Rivera put a cross in the figure s hand He did so and made a small cross with straw appliqué Rivera says that piece led him to start doing straw appliqué Now Rivera grows his own wheat straw and waits for it to achieve the right depth of color before he harvests it He uses lighter colored straw for faces because faces have to look like faces He gives equal attention to the draping of clothing You have to give them movement he says His Santa Cruz featured in Arte y Amistad highlights the numerous design elements Rivera uses in his borders and figures In the upper right section he has even included a deer inspired by renowned Native American painter Pablita Velarde In addition to creating art Rivera runs the Nambé Trading Post founded by his grandparents For years Rivera collected Native American art but got to the point where he had too many pieces He now collects retablos by Hispanic artists Santa Cruz

    of La Cofradía de Artes y Artesanos Hispanicos a pivotal grupo group of Nuevomexicana o artists For years Tapia sold his work at Spanish Market but was pressured by market officials to use traditional softer and natural colors That attitude infuriated the artist who believes that there s a brightness to religion and has always resisted being stereotyped During his time as a Spanish Market artist Tapia planted a number of other seeds and introduced imagery such as Noah s Ark to the existing canon of biblical subjects Tapia says that when he left the market other doors began to open Tapia s social commentary and keen cultural observation are at the core of his work He tells the stories of real life through his sculpture and at the same time makes his saints human In the case of Doña Sebastiana Relaxes after a Hard Day at the Office Tapia had no idea what he was going to create when he began carving in one corner of the wood Six months later the piece included in Arte y Amistad was completed Tapia father of artist Sergio Tapia is the great great great nephew of artist Celso Gallegos Tapia s personal

  • Arte y Amistad: Sergio Tapia
    a table in his father s booth Differentiating oneself from a famous parent isn t always easy but Tapia has successfully defined himself and his art Every once in a while he hears someone say to his father Oh you re Sergio s Dad When approaching each piece he immerses himself in researching the art and history of his subject matter For whatever reason I ve always been into history he says You have to know the story For Tapia both disciplines are intertwined Look at the history of the world What we know comes from art Art gives you a view of people at any certain given time Tapia plans out each piece and is both methodical and creative in his approach In doing so he acknowledges that he follows the basic rules of composition balance and color but says I try to get something out of it that the viewer hasn t seen before According to Tapia The science of art is a series of questions and every now and then someone has an answer As a child Tapia remembers collecting matchbox cars horse figures and hats Now he collects Mexican masks as well as Spanish and Mexican
